[gst-devel] xvideosink on Solaris

Xvideosink on Solaris doesn't build because the Xv extension is not yet 
supported there.  I noticed that the sys/Xv code is already #ifdef'ed
with "#ifdef HAVE_XVIDEO", so there wasn't any need to change the code
to get things working.

I made the attached patch which changes only the toplevel configure.ac
and the sys/Makefile.am.  However, I'm not sure that this is really
the best way to get this working since I obviously am now forcing
xvideo to always build.  It might be better to check to make sure X
is present and build xvideosink only if it is?

Also, the ext/gdk_pixbuf plugin does not build with Gnome 2.0 since
it makes use of GdkPixbufFormat.  It might be nice if the configure
script did not build this plugin if you do not have the right version
of GTK+ installed.
